Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority is finishing up an improvement project at Valley West, the apartment building for the elderly that it owns in Masury, and is about to embark on two at Hilltop Gardens, its family housing property, also in Masury.
Hudson Group Inc. of Hermitage is more than 90-percent complete on a project to replace the roof at Valley West; improve the façade, including replacing siding; and rehabilitate the kitchens and bathrooms of the 50 apartments in the three-story building, said Jeff Siwiec, capital programs coordinator for the authority.
The kitchen and bathroom equipment likely is original to the building, which was built in 1983, he said.
Noting workers were installing siding on a recent Saturday, resident Harriett Snyder said, “When it’s done, it’s gonna look real nice.”
Hudson won the contract based on a bid of $825,000.
At Hilltop, which has 50 apartments in 23 townhouses, the authority has awarded a contract to mill, repave and restripe four sections of the driveway and parking lot, including both entrances. The project was expected to start in late June, and be completed in July.
Chagrin Valley Paving Inc. of Chagrin Falls was awarded a contract based on a bid of $87,215 for work at three properties. The Hilltop section is valued at $29,954, and Chagrin Valley’s bid was the lowest of three.
Bids are due by July 8 for a project to stabilize the slumping hillside at Hilltop, including work on a catch basin. Work is expected to be done in late July to early August and cost about $150,000, Siwiec said.
There is no danger to residents from the hillside, Siwiec said, calling the project a preventative measure.
The projects are financed by capital funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
